Marea Restaurant – New York City food Photography

I had the pleasure to photograph one of NYC’s most anticipated fine dining establishments recently. Marea restaurant is located on Central Park South and is headed by chef Michael White and partner Chris Cannon. The food is amazing if you have a chance to make it there, I highly suggest checking it out. I did all their food photography during the afternoon and then stuck around for dinner service to catch the action in the kitchen and dining room. I also took some audio which you can listen to while enjoying the photos. Just click the little play button below…. Bon Appetite!



Brad - Makes me pretty damn hungry. Good stuff.

Joan Polzin - Bravo, Dan! My fave is the picture of the lox and caviar. It is a double work of art, one created by the chef and the other by you. Congrats on this wonderful work. joanie

Fotografo Matrimonio - Really nice pictures.
I like the colour food on white.

Jamie Guigno - Gorgeous photography Daniel as always but you get better and better seriously! Listening tot he audio while checking out the photos adds such a nice touch….great work!

A lovely Jewish Wedding

I recently shot the beautiful wedding of Bethany and Yvgeny at the Round Hill House in Washingtonville, NY. The house where the wedding took place was really stunning, affording a lot of photographic opportunities despite the fact it rained for a bit. We were still able to find some great light and eventually the rain let up and the sun came out. Everyone had a great time there was a lot of Hora (traditional Jewish dance) and drinking (It was a Russian wedding so the the vodka flowed!)

Now for some wedding photographs:


The bride had trouble deciding between wearing her traditional wedding shoes and these sneakers. Since you couldn’t really see the shoes because the length of the dress she decided to go with the wedding sneakers.. I told her she should do what made her feel comfortable and I’d make sure to get great photos regardless:)


Here’s one example of a beautiful photograph by a second photographer. This shot below was taken by one of my second shooters, Jamie:

Engagement session – Jennifer and Dawn

Last year I had the privilege of photographing a commitment ceremony.. which was the first one I had ever photographed. I haven’t had the chance again until meeting Jennifer and Dawn, who hired me to cover their day this coming September. A few weeks ago the three of us met up for an engagement session and got some awesome photos. Dawn is also the creator of a fantastic wedding website called The Alternative Bride, focusing on same-sex marriages, commitment ceremonies, and basically all things wedding related. Dawn also did an interview with me about wedding photography that you can read through that link.

It’s also cool to check out her website because she’s blogging a lot about their upcoming wedding and I’m honored to be a part of it.. check out some of our engagement photos here:


Natalie - My friends are beautiful – and your work is flawless. Thank you so much for making them so happy and for your amazing work. :)

natalie - beautiful work Daniel. VERY IMPRESSIVE.

Dawn - Thanks so much for everything Daniel! We’re so happy with how everything turned out. We had a blast that day and we can’t wait for the wedding!!!

Punk Rock Wedding

I’m proud to have another one of my weddings featured on Rock-N-Roll Bride, a website for creative weddings with unqiue brides/grooms and just general good vibing weddings.. it’s a great site to check out for ideas if you’re getting married.

This is the wedding of Alysson and David which I shot recently in Queens, NY. The ceremony took place in a quirky, quaint church in Queens and was headed by the grooms father, who is the Reverend there. At the wedding were a few of the original singers of Blondie, another very cool detail. I loved the mixture of people there and the overall feel of the night. One of my favorite parts of the day was when some loud old school punk music came on the speakers and the bride and groom ripped up the dance floor.

Some photos:


Tre - Man, you are ripping it up lately, dude. Nice shots.

deb - rockin’ shots dude! well done :))

Willie - Really good work, I love things that are different!!
Great hair colour has the groom :-)

Scott O'Neal - Dude, you are one awesome photographer! I enjoy researching and looking at pics just to get ideas. And this set is truly phenominal! Great shots!

SlickRoss - dayum, these seriously are great shots =),

kinda weird to look at tho, its like getting a close look at a moment in life that i wanted to be part of and feel i was meant to be part of, but simply wasnt

Annie - Beautiful photos. I’d love to list off my favorites but there’s just to many. The red roses against her dress, the cake, Dave and Alysson on the dance floor. Any picture with a kiss =) I could go on and on. Great work.

River - Awesome shots!!!! Almost glamour. Kind of like you were ordered by the punk rock royalty to photograph at the palace! good shots :)

Karen Burger - Those are great photographs! You really captured the feel of the wedding and the style of the bride and groom! I am really impressed!!!

Ruby L'Heureux - Incredible photos, Daniel!! So glad that the “punk royalty” chose you as their photographer.

Uncle Bill - Kewl!

Jes - absolutely love love love the pics!!!! what an amazing day that was!

bibhuti - great couple…

Heather C. - Wonderful photos that not only captured the moment by the essence of who Alyson and David are….of course I knew Alyson way back when but she is even more beautiful now!

Jamie Guigno - I love how you photographed this wedding, really authentic and yet inventive, if that makes any sense.

Free Wedding Photography

This is a fun story.

As part of my freelance photography career, I photograph a street fashion feature for a website called where I find interesting outfits on the streets of New York City and photograph them. The feature has led me to meet some interesting and fashionable people all randomly on the streets of New York.

Last week I saw Jonathan (click that link to see the photo I took for Racked) walking with a group of people and liked his summery style. He had on a nice looking jacket so I walked over and asked him if he’d like to be which he said “sure thing”. While I was photographing him, someone from the group said, “You know today is his wedding day.” His now bride was standing in the group and I asked where their photographer was. They had a small ceremony and had gone for lunch at Locanda Verde (I haven’t eaten there but I did photograph it for you can click that link to see my photos) and didn’t hire a wedding photographer for the day. I said what a shame that was considering how nice they were both dressed up.. so offered my services for a few minutes to do a little free wedding photography, and they were like “Sure lets do it!”


Brad Ross Photography - Great shots and a wonderful thing to do on your part.

Rhys - This was a wonderful bit of serendipity on my daughter’s wedding day! Jane and Jonathan are a great couple in addition to being stylish. You captured the essence of their special day very well.

wedding photographer Perth - Great work, and my hat’s off to you for doing something for nothing! Really enjoyed the two images with the water reflections – and yes quite an interesting jacket :)

brooke bullard - Thank you for taking the time to shoot some of the hippest people around! As a longtime family friend of Jane, there is no one better to receive such a gift. The girl has got good karma! Thanks again-Kind Regards, Brooke Bullard

Bert (uncle) - Lovely couple, lovely photos
Your generous inspiration obviously worked

DJ Paine - AWESOME STORY! that is brilliant!

Lew D'Souza - Wonderful images! I really like the way you’ve used the puddle to capture their reflections!

Doug Brenizer - Nice and real smooth dude.

Ana - Those are awesome photos. That was so nice of you. I follow your feature on Racked all the time.

Sarah Skinner - How very lovely! As a longtime friend of the MOB’s, I can see the bride’s wonderful grandmother smiling through her radient and beautiful face. You did a very cool thing. Thank you! I love New Yorkers and New York. Winky

Somer - great story and beautiful photos, thanks for sharing

deb - these photos are sweet and lovely. dosn’t it feel good to do something like that for someone? i feel photos are a wonderful ‘gift’ to be able to give people weather they’ve payed you to take them or not, and to surprise someone with something as beautiful as what you have given this couple makes it all the more special… both for them and for you! congratulations on a few moments WELL spent daniel.
